Symbolic are a Progressive metal band from California that is inspired by great groups such as Black Sabbath, Dream Theater, Rush, Judas Priest and many others. Xenatopia is an excelent album in spite of the little interesting rhythm changes and the bass guitar, that can be heard only at the end of "Zealot". The voice of the singer is good but, as many other Progressive singers, it has the problem that after some songs, becomes boring, because of so many high notes. Anyway I appreciated the guitar solos and the careful and complex drums. Very good album.
